I am finishing my FNP program in December and will (hopefully) pass my certification boards the end of January, I am also expecting my first baby in April. I am currently working PRN as an RN so I will not have any maternity leave. I am hoping to have either an NP job lined up to start in January or an NP job that will allow me to start later in the summer. I am so excited to start my new career and as long as I can find a job my husband will stay home w the baby, so there's zero temptation for me not to return to work after the baby is born.
I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this type of situation or any advice. Specifically I'm wondering about
1. Interviewing while pregnant (pitfalls to avoid, how to tell employer);
2. Whether employers would consider hiring me at all, considering the situation;
3. Whether an employer would be more likely to offer time off after starting in January (since I won't be eligible for FMLA yet) or postponing the start date for a few months?
Thank you in advance for your help!
